Timpanogos has a unique culture where students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to accept everyone for their differences. Teachers care about students and want them to succeed.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
Timpanogos boasts one of the highest AP pass rates in the state. Their English department has THE highest AP pass rate in the state.


Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
Teachers are encouraged to give only meaningful homework, and busy work is discouraged. Students are given class time to complete assignments.

As a parent, I am very happy with the quality of education my children have received at Timpanogos High School. There is a wide variety of AP classes offered. Academics are a high priority at this school. I feel that the English department is probably the best in the district. One of the most impressive things about Timpanogos is the principal. He is genuinely interested in the students and how they are doing. He walks the halls and greets students by name. Timpanogos is a great school in a beautiful location.

THS is an excellent school. Every year it is in the top five academic schools for the state of Utah. I have had two students that graduated and one more who will begin this fall. THS has a great AP program. My, son graduated with 48 AP credits. Mrs. Crandall and Mr. Nagro are excellent in the English department. Mr. Eastman has been an asset to counseling department.

This is the best high school. I love Principal Murphy. The National Honor Society does so much great community service. The English teachers are amazing. Mr. Eastman is a great counselor.

I am a former student of THS, and even though it's been 12yrs since I've attended school there the THS I remember was always focused on the success of their students. I was not one of the rich students or an academic achiever or involved in any extra curriculars or a trouble maker. However all of my teachers knew exactly who I was by name and face, alot of the administration as well, if my mom called the school to find out what could be done to help me out my counselor would meet with her and figure out what I could do to improve myself. One of the things that my counselor did was make me TA for my geometry class for math credit because I always struggled with math(and still do)

Cons: Attendance personnel are rude and defensive. Teachers who compete for the same students often do NOT get along -- and the kids are the pawns in their career strategies. Tons of senior preference, as opposed to promoting excellence. Faculty gets 60% vote for student council. Student vote -- at 40% -- is a sham, but most kids think they are really voting their class officers. Scheduling is a JOKE. Faculty too entrenched in typical, mediocre public school mindset and tend to be inflexible about new ideas and alternative education. Instead of embracing things that server STUDENTS, they are more concerned about control/power. Too much twaddle. Pros: Nice building, well kept and clean. Principal regularly walks the halls and knows many kids by name (although not many of the reserved ones who could probably use the recognition more). Many AP classes offered. Pretty good academics.

Love the principal - he's done great things with the school. Excellent academics and lots of students passing AP exams. Great, supportive atmosphere. Beautiful school, beautiful setting.

Attendance personal are very rude and the attendance policy is very strict. There is an 'arc' class that you have to attend 2 hrs of for every absence. The overall school is ok but I would consider attending another high school.
